    Interview Details

    Applied through a recruiter, and was invited to interview 3 weeks after applying. This was 1st and only interview. A short, 45 minute interview with 2 interviewers, which consisted simply of my background and competency based questions, and given tour of the lab. Interviewers were very friendly, allowing me to feel relaxed throughout.

    Associate Director Corporate Development Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Eurofins Scientific in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Through a recruiter I was sold the opportunity to attend an interview with a Director. Interview was in Oakleigh, a substantial distance from Melbourne CBD. I had just returned from overseas and was told in no uncertain terms, relayed from Eurofins, that I could not delay the process by a day in order to properly effect the interview and overcome some jetlag, despite suggesting this was a preferred option. Turned up and was neither impressed by the locale or offices. OK, so maybe I am a snob so I tried to clear that from my disposition. I was met by the Director. Didn't get a "hi, did you find the offices ok?", or "thanks for coming", just "please go in here for your test". Test was psychometric (logic) and calcs. (0.5 hours). Interview followed, no structure. Interviewer couldn't care less about my experience or skill-set, and was more interested in how old I am/was. Thoroughly unpleasant chap, with little or no interest in even attempting to sell me the role. I interpreted the whole process and interviewer as both contemptuous and rude. Complete waste of my time and speaking of time, I couldn't even get a "thanks for your time" at the end of the interview even though I certainly gave one. Just Wow! On a positive note, it makes for the best interview story ever.

    .NET Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Brussels (Belgium)

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a weekinterviewed at Eurofins Scientific in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    The process went very quick. It was through a hunting company. I had a first interview with the people from the hunting company, then this second interview at Eurofins Belgium. This interview lasted quite long (in total around 4 hours). I arrived at 10am in the morning, the first one hour is computer test. The test is a program written in C#, we have to how many unit tests have passed and how many not. For the un-passed ones, correct them. I was at the last question, which requires to write a unit test. It is about looping a list, I answered to use a enumerator. But time was up quickly that I could not finish writing my code. (In general, all the 5 questions were easy, except the last one that you have to write code, and the time is limited). Second hour is written tests consisting 3 parts: about .c#, algorithms, and SQL. Again, I cannot finish it because of the time limits. It was a junior position, so the interviewer told me he cares more about the computer test rather than the written test. At lunch, they provided me salade and bread. In the afternoon, mainly face-to-face talk interview. The next day I got the interview feedback.
